Is it only in my head? When mental health gets physical

It’s generally believed that mental illness is just that – in your head.

But sometimes the stresses in your head get so great that mental illness starts affecting you slightly more and showing physically. Continue reading “Is it only in my head? When mental health gets physical”

#FatherhoodFriday featuring Daddy Poppins

I have been in the blogging world for a few months now and I love The Bloggerhood – I’ve (virtually) met so many lovely people and I wanted to celebrate this by featuring some amazing daddy bloggers.

Days Out with a Toddler: Little Fant Farm

This weekend we had some beautiful weather and a toddler with more energy than the Duracell bunny.

Saturday we visited Leeds Castle and had a lovely day; but despite the mountain of washing I needed to conquer I decided to take the mancub out for a few hours to try and burn off some energy.

In my local area there is an organisation called Ieso Digital Health which is a self referral service for online and telephone counselling and therapy.

I have tried it in the past and found because I was feeling better or off my nut on anti-depressants it didn’t really work for me, and I’ve kind of just gone it alone.

Days Out with a Toddler: Leeds Castle, Kent

We are really lucky to live five minutes down the road from Leeds Castle and until a few years ago I had never been.  I have taken the mancub a few times now and I rate it so highly I really wanted to review it on my blog properly. Continue reading “Days Out with a Toddler: Leeds Castle, Kent”
